So in conclusion this book is a wonderful read. I just got it this afternoon and am loving it. (Currently about a third of the way through.) JK Rowling is an amazing author and I am glad her series is as successful as it is. As someone who inspires to be a writer I'd be happy to experience even a fraction of her success.
Also final note, I am really happy I got this Slytherin edition. I love the color of the book and the little extra bits are nice. I only wish I could have gotten a hardback, but did not want to buy from third party sellers. Oh well I very much do like the look of this book. Just have to be gentle with it, since paperbacks are delicate.
The book is as described from the picture. The only problem I had was that it had a few bents on the sides from the packaging.
The book also includes amazing art and illustrations. It also has fancy facts about Slytherin-related people and the house.
Overall, this is a perfect gift for the proud Slytherins out there and book collectors and other HP fanatics.
Definitely worth my money and time.
It's an absolutely beautiful version what with the chapter titles, old feel to the pages, and the background information on your house of choice. Don't be surprised the the edges of the pages are stuck together a bit from the green coloring on the edges as they are easy and strangely gratifying to pull apart as your turn the pages. But in general, it's common for colored edges to stick a bit.
Its so worth the money if you're an avid fan and lover of your house. A must have for the true collector.

Which they love as much.
I will add a photo if I can sneak the book out of my sons bedroom.. He tries to hide it from his brother to keep the house and the notes within the book sacred and special. As his brother has a book under a different house. He has the hufflepuff book from the same collection. He is 19 and although he loves the book it doesnt have the same magical quality that my 14 year old has given to his book.
My youngest treats his slytherin book with such care as to him its his favourite and very best book. As an adult I think all books within this limited edition collection are beautiful. They have been written in a way that both children and adults alike will love. Like I say the pages feel think and old which add to the charm and character of the book. I also love that the edges of the book are coated in the house colours which match in beautifully to the front cover.
I would definitely recommend these books to all
I have received the Hardcover editions few days back and I was glad to see the different stuff related to particular houses other than the cover. I was quite sure that the Hardcover and paperback edition will not have anything different other than the cover, that's why I haven't ordered all 8 of them. I guess I was right as the paperback edition is exactly the same as the hardcover edition in terms of number of pages and overall content. The look and feel of these paperback edition is also very good.
Those who don't know these anniversary editions (both hardcover and paperback) contains the introduction of house founder, House Relic and Livery and their Ghost's intro. The book also has a Hogwarts map spread in 2 pages. Apart from these there are additional stuff related to sorting, Hogwarts quiz, House Common Room, Famous house student (Draco Malfoy in this case), alumnus (Voldemort and Bellatrix Lestrange ) and Head (Snape) along with House Cup info. The last 3 pages are dedicated to an article about the 20 years' journey of JK Rowling focused on potterverse.
It's almost as perfect as a it could get and I guess I need not to say anything about the main story because apparently the entire world is in fan-list. Go for it
Just a heads up, the book does contain spoilers in the extra content about Slytherin at the front and back.
However, I was a bit disappointed by the 'extra contents', I was expecting more but it's just a couple of pages at the beginning and at the end with information that can be easily gathered by reading the main books. In my opinion, it doesn't really add anything new.
